Rose in snow...

Lily, Winston and Rose (right side) each claiming a part of the stick.


Rose and Cervelo sharing a toy...

Cervelo chewing on toy while Rose finds the toy a good pillow for her head.

Rose changes sides and now is sitting up with Cervelo lying down.

Rose teaching her son the ethics of how to beg....

Cervelo to the left with Rose on the right side.

Stuart was eating a turkey sandwich. Now you know why the two weims are so focused.

Observation post........

Rose standing on the right on top of a bike jump with Winston beside her. Both had previously run up the jump onto the other side of the trial. Elevation gain with this trail. I still had to climb up and over those logs which were very slippery with the snow. The weims are always waiting for me, just not fast enough!
